Cal Poly Names Jon Sioredas as Head Wrestling Coach
SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. — Jon Sioredas, head wrestling coach at Grand Canyon the last two seasons, has been named to the same position at Cal Poly.
The announcement was made Tuesday by Mustang Director of Athletics Don Oberhelman. Sioredas replaces Brendan Buckley, Cal Poly’s head coach the last five seasons who resigned last month in order to accept a position as executive director of Beat the Streets Wrestling, New York City.
“I am honored and excited to lead a program with such rich tradition,” Sioredas said. “I would especially like to thank Don Oberhelman and the Cal Poly Athletic Department for giving me this opportunity.
“Our expectations at Cal Poly are simple: to graduate with a meaningful degree, have a reputation of excellence on campus and in the community, and to produce NCAA All-Americans and national champions,” Sioredas added.
Sioredas (suh-REE-duss) brings to Cal Poly an extensive background of collegiate coaching experience on top of his All-American wrestling days at Tennessee at Chattanooga.
